Just thought I’d take a few minutes out of my early morning before I make my way to the beach to tell you all about my holiday. I arrived on Sunday after dropping the dogs at the puppy resort. It was pouring rain in San Antonio; in fact, there was a tornado in Southwest San Antonio (I live in the Northwest). I drove for three hours through periods of dry weather and pouring rain to reach Corpus Christi. The closer I got yo Corpus Christi, the worse the weather got. When I crossed the bridge to Padre Island, The rain was coming down in buckets. But then it started to clear a little.
I found my motel which is very nice and cozy and within walking distance to many eateries and the beach and souvenir shops. I walked to a place I know well for dinner and had a lovely dinner and had an early night in preparation for a day at the beach.
When I went to the beach Monday, it was low tide, with high surf and tide pools from the storm the day before. I walked on the beach and then read lying on my towel on the beach. The tourists had mostly gone home and I had the beach practically to myself. I decided not to go fishing as red tide is infecting the area around Port Aransas right now. I walked on the beached Tuesday and took some time out to have my nails done since I broke one on Sunday in the packing frenzy. Today I plan to go horseback riding on the beach, which will be fun. Tomorrow I go home, but I plan on getting a henna tattoo before I go and buy some souvenirs.
So that’s the story of my holiday. It’s been lovely and relaxing and everything I’d hoped it would be. I couldn’t ask for more.
